The Teaching Point

The exclusion of a lead point in a case of invagination in adult patients is of high importance. Neoplasms are the most frequent cause. Contrast enhanced CT scan is the primary method of choice in determining the diagnosis of invagination, whereas ultrasound is the second most accurate method. On CT, an intussusception appears as a complex soft tissue mass, typically as a “target” or “bull's-eye” mass.

Abstract
Ileocolic invagination in the adult may be caused by adenocarcinoma and lead to intestinal obstruction. We report a case of a cecal adenocarcinoma that was complicated by an ileocolic invagination in a 38 year old female, diagnosed on a contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen and highlights the importance of contrast enhanced CT for diagnosis of ileocolic invagination.
